  • A Blue and White Double Gourd Vase, Qianlong Period (1736-1795)
Provenance:

Chinese Blue and White Porcelain from the Collection of Robert Murray Bell and Ann Walker Bell (Lots 295-304)

The Bell family began collecting Chinese porcelain in the 1930s, and continued until Robert Murray’s death in 1998. They were dedicated and enthusiastic collectors, gradually forming one of Toronto’s finest collections of blue and white porcelain. Following Murray’s death, and under Ann’s careful stewardship, the majority of the Bell’s collection was generously donated to the permanent collection at the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art in Toronto.
